(United Press Staff Correspondent)
Washington, Aug. 16. All efforts by democratic sen
alors to agree with republicans on a program of reserva

result of word from President Wilson.
The prosi.cnt, in a talk late yester-i mmmmmm
day with Senator Hitchcock, urn to ad
ministration leader, strongly diseour-
aged even tlie discussion of reservations
by democrats. He made it plain to
Hitchcock that, in his opinion, the day

What democrat must concentrate j
their efforts on, ia the president's opiu-

acceptance of unieiulmeuts. While it
ha been generally recognized for weeks
that there are not enough votes in the
senate to make general textiuul i;inend

the slightest possibility of amendment
of any section must be removed before
he will even consider reservations.
The president' attitude, as stated by
Hitchcock today, broke off virtual nego

Xew York, Aug. 10 (failed Press)
Fundamental national principles of
the Argentine government will prevent
any overwhelming swarm of Herman
emigration to that country, according
to Dr. Romulo S. Kaoa, Argentine min
ister to the United States. Naou's opin
ion was set forth in an interview with
the New York correspondent of "La!
Prensa" of Buenos Aires, just before
the South American diplomat sailed for
"I p!uc little credence ia the report
that the German government will en
courage emigration and settlement ia
Argentina of some fivo million Ger
mans, said .Naon. "The policy of Ger
many iu the matter of emigration was
always opposed to propaganda aiming
at encouraging nationals to leave the
country and settle abroad. I don't think
such policy will be modified iu mo
ments like the present. Today, uiore
than ever before, Germany needs
co-operation and the assistance of all
her children for the reconstruction of
her economic and financial capacity.
"Hut even admitting that the Ger
man government of private German cor
porations cherish sui.h a plan. I think its
execution is equally impossible, because
fundamental reasons of national Argen
tine policy are opposed to it. Argentina
cannot admit coloniiations favored by
foreign governments because this would
be highly detrimental to the formation
of national sentiment which needs to
be fomented, especially' in countries ill
process of formation.
"Nothing that might even remotely
cause the formation of a state within a
state, could be viewed indifferently by
the people of Argentine."
